John Finn on Crohane, 2005

Shortly after driving over the county bounds from Cork to Kerry you will see the majestic spine of Crohane looming up to the left. It is not a high mountain, just 650 metres, and as such is less popular than the more tempting uplands of Mangerton, The Reeks, etc. It is well worth a visit though as it affords some magnificent views westwards to Lough Guitane, Lough Leane, Killarney, The Reeks, and Mangerton; eastwards to The Paps and the Cork/Kerry border; and southwards to the country beyond Bennaunmore.

As you head west to Killarney take the first turn left beyond the village of Glenflesk. (Look for the signpost to Lough Guitane and an art gallery). As you reach the art gallery take the first turn left immediately beyond it. Drive to the end of the road until you come to a yellow farmhouse. Good manners dictate that you ask permission to park in the yard and on the couple of occasions I’ve been here I’ve not been refused.

Take the path leading up behind the house and stay with it. Very soon you will be afforded magnificent views of Lough Guitane, Bennaunmore, Mangerton and beyond. Continue on the path until it peters out in marshy ground. Head for the barbed wire a short distance away and stay with it until the short climb on to the spine of Crohane that we saw as we drove down. From there it is a short walk to the summit where you can exult in some of the finest views in the Killarney area. Total walking time including time on the summit is only two and a half hours.
